Frequently Asked Questions About Portola Valley CPR Classes

 

Q: What is the advantage of having a CPR class at my business? Currently, we send our staff to a local classroom in Portola Valley with scheduled CPR classes.

A: Most of our instructors are EMTs and Paramedics who have years of arriving at businesses via a 911 call. It’s not uncommon for them to find the victim’s co-workers panicking, disorganized and sometimes even arguing about how to help. When company employees do not train together, they’re frequently not on the same page about how to respond. When we come to your Portola Valley business for a First Aid, CPR or BLS class, we will train your staff how to respond as a group in your office. It’s the best way to prepare your staff to provide First Aid or CPR for a coworker.

 

Q: A CPR class at my Portola Valley office or home? How do I schedule that?

A: Feel free to contact us with any questions you have. Since most people only do First Aid and CPR certification classes every two years, it can be difficult to remember the name of the class you need and which organization’s certification is required for your business in Portola Valley. Just ask us. Part of our job is to know the CPR and First Aid certification requirements for different industries. We are familiar with OSHA, county dental societies, healthcare provider CPR requirements and the EMSA.

 

Q: Do your First Aid certification classes meet OSHA’s First Aid & CPR certification requirements for Portola Valley?

A: Yes, we instruct ASHI and American Red Cross First Aid classes in Portola Valley because OSHA accepts those certifications to fulfill its First Aid and CPR certification requirements.

Q: I see you offer CPR AED certification classes for Portola Valley. What does AED mean?

A: We have all seen a person being defibrillated with paddles on TV medical shows. With advances in technology, now everybody can use a defibrillator called an AED – Automated External Defibrillator. When the AED is turned on it talks the user through what to do. Instead of paddles, sticky pads are applied to the victim’s chest and then the AED analyzes the victim to determine if they need a shock to get their heart beating normally. They are surprisingly easy to use and widely available for the public to use in airports, malls, gyms and sports stadiums. For our CPR AED classes in Portola Valley, we bring practice AEDs so you will be prepared to use one if needed.

I recently completed a CPR class with Chris, and I urge anyone who is interested in taking a CPR class to take Chris’ class; you’ll be happy you did. Chris is a natural teacher, and he has an easy going and very likable personality.


Tom Rooker

As an independent businesswoman, it was refreshing to work with someone who believes as I do:that punctuality, professionalism, kindness, and good customer relations are worthy goals to achieve.


Sornam Sahadevan

My family had the pleasure of having Chris teach us a class that, in my opinion, is not an option if you choose to have children – it’s mandatory.
